In 1998, Child Care Services Association created the Teacher Education and Compensation Helps (T.E.A.C.H.) Early Childhood® Scholarship Program to address the issues of under-education, poor compensation and high turnover within the early childhood workforce. The first T.E.A.C.H. Program was launched in North Carolina and has since spread to more than twenty states. In 1998, Indiana awarded our first program scholarship.
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Indiana, is a unique scholarship program that links education, compensation, and commitment to improve the quality of early care and educational experiences for young children and their families.
